The Hurricanes’ penalty kill managed to kill just 17 of 27 (63.0%) power plays it faced in the four games Brind’Amour missed in December. He finished the season tied for first among Carolina players with two shorthanded goals and five shorthanded points.

Along with his defensive contributions, Brind’Amour finished 2006-07 ranked second among all Hurricanes skaters and 24th in the NHL with 82 points, led the team and ranked tied for 14th in the NHL with 56 assists and ranked fifth on the team with 26 goals.
